“Great Food nice terrace”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2013

After walking around all day in the Medina and Souks this is a very nice place come for some good French food in a nice setting. The terrace is very good and nice if you are a couple only thing is it is a bit dark when you are trying to read a menu. The beers and cocktails are super with a good selection and service is great with nice helpful staff we had the monkfish and salmon and they were great and if staying longer would come back again.
A great place super food nice terrace

“Should rank higher, do not miss this cafe/restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2013

Located in the Gueliz district of Marrakech, this is much more peaceful than the hussle and bustle of the Medina. Easily found on Rue De La Liberte, its open all day too. A lot of restaurants in this area close between lunch and dinner, but they're open the whole time so need to worry about getting a table.

With an obvious European influence, the staff all speak fluent English, were knowledgable, friendly, and prompt.

A simple burger (much hungered after days on the road and tagines) was cooked medium to perfection. Sit outside on the rooftop and enjoy the heat. Eating here another day, I enjoyed a steak tartare that put many I've had in the UK to shame, and my partners Monkfish would make you wonder how we can't do it that well in the UK being surrounded my the seas.

At night, the lights go down, tables become candlelit, and locals come out to drink and eat here too. Definitely one of the more stylish places for simple affordable food.

If this was in my home town, I'd go every week

“Hit or Miss”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2013

I came to the restaurant with a group of friends. The setting is very nice and we ate on the terrace. It seemed everyone had a different opinion on the food though. I had the croque monsiuer and I'm positive it was microwaved! I took a bite and burnt my whole mouth! It was also soggy and in general disappointing. One friend had the curry burger and said it was okay. Other friends had salads which they really liked. Overall the ambiance was good, but the food was just okay. It is a nice place to have a break from Morocco, and I might go back and try again and order something different.

“Great Western food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2013

We came here after 6 days in Marrakech - one of our party had a lot of difficulty with local food, so this was a huge relief. The food is fantastic, and the wine's not bad - but the bill was pretty hefty. I ate 2 courses, had wine, and shared a dessert, so 285 dirhams wasn't outrageous, but was significantly more than anywhere else I ate that week. The burgers are fantastic.
